McDonnell Caravans parks are located along the West Norfolk coast at Snettisham, Heacham, Hunstanton, Thornham and Brancaster.
Along with the purchase of your caravan, you need to be aware of costs such as; site fees/rent, gas, electric and insurance.
Prices are determined on the park location and plot size. Prices range from £7,000 to £80,000.
The site fees/rents for our parks vary according to park location and season. Prices start from £2,600 for the 2016 season.
Dog are welcome on our parks. The basic dog rules apply - if ‘an accident’ occurs on the park please pick it up and dispose of it and all dogs to be on leads at ALL times.
Letting/renting of your caravan is strictly forbidden. Your caravan is intended for use by the owners and members of your immediate family. Any caravan owner found to be sub-letting will be asked to remove their caravan from the park.
NO, this is something we are very strict about, your caravan is for your leisure, holiday and recreational purposes only and is not intended as a principal place of residence. You must own an alternative property elsewhere; we cannot accept the addresses of relatives and friends. The park license is registered for holiday purpose only and therefore residing on the park would put us in breach of our site license. The Park or the Council can terminate the contract of anyone they believe to be using their caravan as a permanent residence.
Contact Mike McDonnell or David Smith at Head Office and we can arrange a vaulation. You can not sell your caravan with the priveldge of the plot, however you can sell your caravan off-site (disconnection fees will apply).
Yes. Every caravan on the parks must be insured either on McDonnell Caravans block policy or on your own policy. We inspect insurance documentation annually to ensure you have the correct cover for the caravan, plot and park. If you do not obtain adequate insurance cover you will be in breach of your Terms and Conditions.
Each park offers different benefits, for example Shepherds Port, Snettisham the rent includes gas, on other parks the gas is chargeable. The rent on ALL parks includes water, sewage, refuse collection, grass cutting and rates.
